Massey University Veterinary Teaching Hospital has a permanent, full-time opportunity for a qualified and experienced Veterinary Technician to work in our Farm Services Clinic. We operate a busy primary practice, with an interesting and diverse workload.

We also operate a small production animal hospital. Check us out here -

You will be involved in teaching veterinary and veterinary technology students so you must have a passion for imparting knowledge and practical teaching. There will also be opportunities for assisting on research projects. The successful candidate must also have a commitment to their own professional development.

We expect applications to have at least two years rural production animal working experience, including experience working with dairy cattle.

Being able to react to, and manage, changing priorities is important in this role. As well as having demonstrable experience working in a team environment to deliver services to veterinary clients and patients. Being able to show initiative and work effectively under pressure is also essential.

The position will involve some evening/night duties and on-call work. You will be expected to work a 37.5 hour week, but must be prepared to work overtime and outside of normal hours of work, including early morning, when caseload requires it.
